What Is Crawl Rate?
Crawl rate is the number of requests per second a search engine crawler can make on a website when crawling it. It’s also referred to as the crawl rate limit.
Crawl rate impacts the crawl budget for a website, which is the number of URLs a search engine will crawl on a website on any given day. You can improve the crawl rate by increasing server response time, improving web page loading speeds, keeping sitemaps up to date, and making sure internal links are not broken.
